EFI Launches Jetrion 4900
At the Labelexpo Europe tradeshow in Belgium, ended October 1, EFI launched its new UV inkjet-based Jetrion 4900 press, which includes inline laser finishing for label converters.
The Jetrion 4900 is described by EFI VP Sean Skelly, as “a robust industrial press that is ideal for label converters looking to transfer high-cost, short- and medium-run jobs to digital systems, from print file straight through to finished roll.”
A four-colour system, the Jetrion 4900 has capabilities to print opaque white UV inks in a single pass, delivering flexo-quality labels, according to the company, that are heat, cold and chemical resistant, and UL-certified on select substrates.
The finishing system features high-powered dual lasers from SEI Laser Converting, offering capabilities like die cutting, slitting, and back-scoring on a range of substrates from paper, foil and film to specialty stock. The press runs standard flexo rolls and offers inline and offline modes for special jobs.
